Vine Trust Barge

The Barge is the UK headquarters of Vine Trust, an international development charity that works with Tanzanian and Peruvian partners to strengthen health systems and participate in construction projects.

We connect and involve volunteers with these long-term partnerships to help create sustainable change for vulnerable communities.

The barge has facilities to cater for a number of different events including; meetings, presentations, seminars and celebrations.

There is also a ramp leading up to the entrance of the barge and a lift inside to enable disabled access.

Our guests have access to free parking in the Fingal Hotel car park.

The barge has three rooms available for hire:

A multipurpose Glass Room

A Training Room

An Executive Boardroom with views across the water to the nearby Ocean Terminal and Western Harbour.

How to get here:

The barge is situated at Prince of Wales Dock in Leith, just off Ocean Drive.

The barge is minutes’ walk from the gorgeous Shore area of Leith.

If you're heading in from the centre of town, you can get to Abbeyhill and then follow Easter Road down past Leith Links and onto Ocean Way, taking the first left at the roundabout onto Ocean Drive and then turning left at the sign for the Fingal Hotel (you'll see it just in front of you). The barge is just behind this hotel, and there's free all-day parking for our guests in the Fingal car park.
